    Got this guy this morning, (sorry about the bad cell phone pic) and its quickly becoming my favorite legends class toy in a while. Probably because all my other TFs are packed up and headed to japan... I might be going through withdrawl LOL


    I also picked up Sideways and Megatron but those are ho-hum

    That's cool. I too have this guy and I like him quite a bit.

    FYI, This would be better suited for the Feedback board though here: Transformers Feedback - TFW2005 - The 2005 Boards. It doesn't look like there is a thread for him yet, but if you take a couple more pictures showing it off then this thread would fit in just fine.

    Individual Legends figures don't tend to get a thread to themselves, which is a pity, but I think there's a couple of ROTF Legends threads in Feedback you could probably tag onto just fine.

    I love me some Legends. Some are very inventive and some are woefully simple. I've got the Brawl version of that figure and I think it's great. He's currently facing off against Universe Legends G2 Megatron. Sideways isn't too bad but he's one of the simpler ones. He's really nice in car mode though.

    yeah I love me some Legends, such a shame most people don't, most people only care about Legends figures when it's a character that's suppose to be that small like Minibots, Cassetts, ect.

    In a sense they're like the ultimate TF figures. They're cheap (well, cheaper than the others), quick and easy to transform when you get the sudden urge, they can be carried around in a pocket if you so wish, they don't take up too much space so even a collection of many Legends might only take up a small amount of display area, and they're usually pretty good representations of a larger figure even though they're a fraction of the size.

    Legends figures are awesome, especially when they're representing smaller characters (Minibots).

    I simply love legends! They're durable and cheap. These are the toys I would buy for my kids (next time) because the bigger ones would just make them cry at how difficult it is to transform them. (The good ol' days were a lot easier!)

    They also make scene and army building a breeze. For example, to re-enact Optimus's fight against the Fallen, it would be impossible in larger sizes because there is no Leader Class Fallen! Besides that, it would be too expensive to get all the figures. However for $15, I can get Jetfire, Optimus and the Fallen all in Legends size, and re-enact my scene!

    Not to mention how little shelf space they take up!

    I'd love a Leader Tankor repaint but I doubt it'll ever happen. A deluxe would be great, even if it ended up being an exclusive of some sort.

    I love the original of this mold, Movie Brawl. The original movie legends weren't great, but he was one of the good ones.

    Legends are cool, but they're not really worth displaying. So I've got a big heap of legends figures in a shoebox. It's pretty rare that you can cram so much fun in such a small space.

    When I'm bored, or watching a dvd or something, I like to have something to fiddle with. So I'll have a rumage through and pick out one I haven't seen in a while. Sometimes I'll set them up in little scenes and leave them there a few days, but then it's back in the box. Yes, I do play with my toys.

    Legends class figures have been really impressing me lately. Especially the Universe ones, but the ROTF ones are really nice. I own quite a few and I'm more than happy with them.

    This would have been nicer if he was painted the darker blue color like on the back of the package instead of powder blue.

    a

    I saw this guy too, didn't remember seeing him before I saw him in store, he looks very nice in tank mode, better tehn alot of the tanks in the lines now.

    The toy is very tempting, but after we seen those Target legends repaints, it is hard to spend the money on him.
